According to the ornament tag: Long ago when parents decorated the Christmas tree they hung the pickle ornament last, hiding it in the green boughs. When the children were allowed to view the tree, they would begin searching for the pickle ornament because they knew they would receive an extra gift for being the most observant.

2. Miniature Gurken
See it hidden in there?
We hide the mini pickle deep in the tree for kids to find. So fun each year!
I am Katie. My husband, Joey, and I bought our first home in Kenosha, WI on May 27, 2010. Like many first time home buyers, this new responsibility made us a little anxious - yet very excited! And we wanted to make this home "us"! The house is old - built in 1928. We are young. And our goal is to bring some fresh youthfulness into its 1,750 square feet while still keeping some of the original charm.
So, with a little sweat equity, and not a whole lot of moolah, we started the renovation process hoping to turn this old house into a young, vibrant home.
Follow along with us as we journey down this DIY home makeover path together.
